Rich and ripe version of the Cannubi Boschis. Dark red fruits, tar and spice hit the plate and sustain forever. Still as fresh as a daisy.

Luciano Sandrone is making some of his finest wines in what has been a long and extraordinary career full of successes. Of the Piedmont wineries that are still in their first generation, those that started in or around the 1980s, Luciano Sandrone is arguably the only estate that has joined the small group of properties, all of them multi-generational, whose wines are widely recognized as icons and collectibles. The 2012 Barolo Cannubi Boschis opens with beguiling aromatics redolent of crushed rose petal, spices, mint and new leather. Wonderfully layered and nuanced, the 2012 offers good freshness to match its inviting, supple fruit. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later, while its alluring, open-knit personality is on full display. In 2012, the fruit tends towards the redder end of spectrum, unusual for Cannubi Boschis, which usually tends towards darker shades of expression. The 2012 is perfumed, lithe and super classy from start to finish. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Mar 2017)
